Best place to stay in Kyoto
A wonderful hotel, great location, impeccable service, fantastic food options. Attached to an amazing mall with so many restaurants and shops and right at the Kyoto Station for unbeatable train and subway connections. An absolute treat! I’ve been to Kyoto 3 times always staying at the Granvia and if I get another chance to be in Kyoto I know exactly where I will stay again!

Kids aren’t allowed at swimming pool
My kid was excited about swimming pool but kids weren’t allowed there. It was very disappointing. Also we requested non smoking room but rooms across the hallway was smoking room and we could smell cigarette entire our stay. I woke up couple of times because of the smell.

Best hotel for first timers to Kyoto
Fantastic and central location, great atmosphere and welcoming staff. The rooms could have been a bit more spacious but they were well designed to accommodate our family with kids. Quite easy to get around within the station city and other parts of Kyoto. The breakfast spread is sumptuous and the luggage forwarding was well executed. It’s really a great place for first timers to Kyoto and a good base to explore from!
